World Superbikes – Argentina Results and Qatar TV Times

Lamb-Stephen
By Steve Lamb

Production Manager - Still considers himself a novice rider, despite passing his test over twenty years ago. Steve has only ever owned four bikes - a '95 Suzuki GSX600F (which he dropped in the first minute of ownership), an '04 Yamaha FZ6 Fazer and currently a '16 Ducati Scrambler Classic, as well as (very slowly) building a '94 Yamaha SR125 'brat tracker'.

 

It's the last round of the season this weekend (wow, where did that year go?) and the runners and riders are heading to the Middle East and the Motul Qatar Round at the desert circuit of Losail, Doha.

The fight for the main WSBK crown may have been wrapped up, but in World Supersport it's all still on the line with just 22 points separating the Bardahl Yamaha teammates Randy Krummenacher and Federico Caricasulo, and third placed Jules Cluzel on the GMT94 Yamaha. With 25 points available this weekend, the racing is sure to be fast and frantic.

In case you missed the last race in Argentina, here's the top five finishers in each of the races:
